Mumbai: Fly-Thru is the process of conveniently transferring from one flight to another without the hassle of going through immigration process again and having to collect your baggage when you are taking two different flights to get to your final destination, and stopping over at a transit station (For example, KUL (Kuala Lumpur) is the transit point for a flight from Tokyo International Airport, Haneda (HND) to KUL and then KUL to PER (Perth International Airport), Australia).

Fly-Thru comes with immense benefits. Firstly, there is no need for a transit visa – no immigration clearance is required in Malaysia and there is an exemption of airport tax at transit hub. However, this is applicable only for international transfers with a maximum stop-over of 18-hours in Malaysia. Quick transit is another advantage – upon arrival from the first flight sector, guests will go through the transfer hall and check-in at the transfer hall to the connecting flight (applicable only for international transfers).

The biggest plus is the ‘free flight move’ offered if first flight gets delayed. Guests can choose to spend transit time at the Premium Red Lounge in the departure hall for a walk-in fee. Premium Flex, Premium Flatbed and MyCorporate Full Flex guests will have complimentary access to the lounge. The Baggage check thru benefit ensures bags are tagged through to your final destination and guests do not need to collect baggage at transit hub and check-in again.
